An art lecture in Bangkok will delve into the history – and the future – of London’s Royal Academy of Arts.
Thailand’s ascent in the world of fine art has been marked and the destination is steadily cementing its reputation on the international art trail.
So it is unsurprising that the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre will be hosting a high-profile talk on the Royal Academy of Arts.
The Royal Academy of Arts: Past, Present and Future will be held at the venue on February 28th. The event will start at 14.30 local time and admission is free.
It will be presented by the academy’s chief executive officer Charles Saumarez Smith, and will begin with a brief overview of the institution’s illustrious history.
Since 1768, when the academy was founded by King George III, the institution has furthered the arts internationally.
Works by exemplary Royal Academy artists – including David Hockney, Antony Gormley and Tracey Emin will drive home the point that Britain is still at the forefront of contemporary art.
